Scrapers from Stewart-MacDonald
At two meetings now it has been suggested that in many cases it is preferable to scrape a surface smooth rather than sand it. These two scraping tools from Stewart-MacDonald might be of interest for the job.
These scrapers have been designed for finishing guitars, but I see no reason why they could not be used for ship modelling.
The Capital Marine Modellers' Guild is a social club for individuals interested in building model ships. It is located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The club is informal and operates on a not for profit basis.
